WW Week #9

Good morning, and happy Wednesday! Just a quick update before I start my day:

I'm officially back in the WW game :)  After a lovely week, I was quite pleased with the scale this morning.

Weekly change: -3.3 pounds
Overall change: -13.0 pounds

  • I've been walking to work instead of taking the bus from the parking lot
  • I've been planning how I want to spend my points in the morning
  • I've been eating more fruits and vegetables
  • I've been eating more carbs in the morning and less at night
  • I've been staying within my daily and weekly points allowance

In terms of the non-weight related aspects of my life, I've been sleeping more, reading more, knitting more, and just being more productive overall. I am excited to carry this energy through Christmas and into 2014!

WW Week #8

I've been so out of control with eating. Must get back on track!  Must get back to the gym!  I've been a bottomless pit.

This Week: I lost 0.2 pounds.  I'm just grateful that it's not a gain!

I included the weekly progress report that Weight Watchers makes.  So many points!!! Yesterday while watching the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, I ate a GIANT bowl of buttery, cheesy pasta. Oh the irony!

Cheese & Chocolate

Cheese!  Cheese is my weakness.. Cheese and chocolate. Chocolate and cheese.  I talked to my friend the other day, and she knits now.  I think I'm going to give it a try... I can't eat if my hands are busy!

I've been kinda struggling to get back on track.  My sleep patterns are off.  Which means I haven't had the energy to workout.  Basically my whole routine is off.  Ideally, I like to be in bed by 9pm, sleep by 9:30pm, awake at 5:30am and working out by 6am.

Anyway, I'm 100% NOT giving up... I'm still tracking points and planning meals.  So determined to make it through this holiday season in one (skinnier) piece

WW Week #7

It pains me to write this, but I must stay accountable...

Gained 4.4 pounds this week

The worst part is that I didn't even do that bad this weekend... it was last night.  I knew that I wasn't physically hungry; that I was just having a craving. I kept waiting for it to go away and then when it didn't, I caved.  This triggered a terrible, terrible downward spiral because as soon as I gave in to one craving, a new craving would mosey on in to take its place. I could not stop eating. I managed to rack up close to 50 points after work alone.

Grrr... frustrating. BUT I came up with an action plan:
  • increase water intake from 64 oz. to 80 oz.
  • eat a 6-8 point breakfast (protein + carbs)
  • go to the gym after work to avoid mindless eating
Anyway. New week. Clean Slate. Back on track.
